Learning Activities Around Our School


Students at Nelson School are experiencing many, many learning activities! We have had Crazy Sock Day, teachers performed a Thanksgiving play for the students and students are improving in reading and math skills!  We want to ensure that our students are well-rounded and focus on providing many different experiences!

Students have worked hard and are demonstrating good school citizenship. We have already had two classroom win the "Manners Classroom of the Month." These classrooms have displayed respectful manner within the school environment. Congratulation to Mrs. Kohlfeld's and Mr. Emerson's 2nd grade classrooms!

We had a strong start to the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year and are looking forward to finishing the year strong!
